Justin Adrian was born and raised in Johnson County, Kansas. He attended the Olathe Public Schools and graduated from Olathe South High School. Justin attended Johnson County Community College (A.A.), the University of Missouri - Kansas City (BSEd), Baker University (MAEd), and the University of Kansas (Graduate History credit). During his time in college, he studied to become an educator at the secondary level. He currently is a high school social studies teacher at Olathe East High School, and is about to finish up his tenth year in May. Justin is currently a co-chair of the Building Leadership Team at his school.
Traveling is one of his favorite hobbies; while traveling all over the world, he has gained perspective on other cultures. When he is not teaching and traveling, he is engaged in politics. Justin is also involved within his church. His Christian faith guides him throughout his daily journey.
During his time in Shawnee, he has realized that the community is still developing, and that although Western Shawnee is a great place to live, there is a need for smart, local economic growth. Justin is a dedicated, passionate person and when he says that he will accomplish a goal, he will. Justin hopes to bring his fresh, new ideas to the Shawnee City Council next January.
